I was 18 at the time.... still trying to convince myself I'd be happy as a guy, but mostly too engrossed in my first year of University. Two hours travel in, well over that to get home. Those lab sessions ending at 6pm were murder, but the 9am chemistry lectures were worse. The buses cost a lot too, and I had $76.92 a month to live on.
In some ways, I think the difficulties of my life kept me from thinking about the Big Problem, so it didn't bother me.
One thing that stuck in my mind though. This particular performance, a Musicgasm that I think will be famed even in centuries to come. I'm lucky to have born witness to it - though only via video.
I so wanted to look like her, you know? But I knew I wouldn't even at age 10. "Elphin" I'm not.
